Seminole Canyon State Park (Val Verde County) Hike – 09/01/2016

This state park is located just off Highway 90 between Comstock and the Pecos River. It is a Historic site with Pictographs from 7000 years ago.  Unfortunately, these may only be viewed by taking a guided tours, so we didn’t see them. 

We walked the Windmill Trail which is not even a half of a mile.  But it was all I could do and I collected my event stamp for the county.

Went into the ranger station to register for the event.

    Your picture of that beautiful purple sage beside the windmill should be entered in a photo contest. Eye catching!
